Pitney Bowes Introduces LobbyTrac™ Visitor Management Solutions15 Dec, 2011
Singapore - December 2011 - Pitney Bowes (Asia Pacific) today announces the introduction of LobbyTrac™, a new suite of Visitor Management Solutions designed to meet the diverse security needs of public and private organizations. This innovative suite of visitor management solutions is delivered through Pitney Bowes’ Solutions Factory, a dedicated team of developers leveraging Pitney Bowes’ patented technologies to customise solutions for the specific needs of local clients under the Growth Markets region.
Organizations are constantly faced with the challenge of ensuring unauthorized personnel do not enter their facilities, while at the same time providing access to those who have a valid reason for entering the premises. The situation is further exacerbated by the need to provide selective access to visitors such as contractors and business partners who need some level of accessibility to the facility on an ad hoc basis.
LobbyTrac™ offers customized Visitor Management Solutions that streamline the process of visitor management and empower organizations to control access to their facilities. Visitor information is accurately and quickly captured for easy tracking while maintaining confidentiality, reducing the risks of security breaches.
Said Mr. Ranvir Singh, Vice President, Solutions Factory - Pitney Bowes Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa & Latin America, and “Managing the access of authorized personnel into a facility continues to be a major concern for companies worldwide. LobbyTrac™ Visitor Management Solutions are customized to meet the needs of various types of organizations, such as government agencies, hospitals, corporations and schools. With LobbyTrac™, these entities will be able to quickly and effectively leverage tried and tested solutions tailored for their needs to monitor and track visitor activity, enhancing overall security as well as their corporate image.”
